98 Screws: What's Holding Your Apartment Together?

Pin it button big

I've taken my apartment apart in preparation for moving out, and I'm left with only memories and this little pile of metal. It turns out it takes a lot of screws to  make an apartment livable..

These screws held up my Scandinavian Shelves, my Makeshift Dresser Shelves, my Dedicated Friend-Shelf, all of my Vintage Shelf Brackets, my cast iron skillet rack, my bedside table shelf, coat hooks, towel hooks, bag hooks, bike hooks, hooks to hold my paper lantern lights, a bathroom mirror, and even some framed art (I simply wrapped the hanging wire around screws that were already in place). I love the look of my apartment now, so nice and bare, with all the holes filled in and painted over — but it would be so impractical for me to live like this. Where would I put all my stuff — on the floor?! Each screw represents something designed to make this little apartment work better, something added to make being at home more pleasant. 

What hard-working but perhaps humble element makes your home work?
